Judith Miller has just spent 85 days in prison
for refusing to tell Special Prosecutor Fitzgerald what her neo-crazy "handlers"
in the Bush-Cheney administration told her to do next, following her service
as their "embedded" media sycophant in Iraq.
That jail-time ought to give pause to the gang of "domestic" neo-crazy media sycophants that have been feeding you neo-crazy lies and misleading statements for years.
And perhaps more importantly, withholding from you the truth.
But what to do about the "foreign" neo-crazy media sycophants – especially
those "covering" the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna
– who are still feeding you lies and withholding the truth from you on the eve
of what may prove to be an even greater strategic disaster than Bush's preemptive
invasion of Iraq?
In a Note
Verbale of August 1, 2005, Iran informed all IAEA members that Iran had
decided to resume uranium-conversion activities – voluntarily suspended almost
two years before – at the Uranium Conversion Facility at Esfahan.
In October 2003, Iran had entered into negotiations with France, Germany and the United Kingdom – who claimed to be negotiating on behalf of the European Union – with the explicit expectation of obtaining "transparent cooperative access" to European nuclear technology.
As a "confidence building measure," Iran voluntarily signed and voluntarily
began to adhere to an Additional Protocol to its IAEA Safeguards Agreement,
pending its ratification by the Iranian parliament.
Iran also extended its voluntary suspension of all uranium-enrichment related
activities taken a year previously to include uranium-conversion activities.
Since all those activities were already subject to Iran's
Safeguards Agreement, Iran invited the IAEA to monitor the suspensions.
It is important for you to know that the IAEA was never a party to the Iran-EU
negotiations. That the IAEA Board of Governors never "had a dog in that
fight." That it is not – and never was – any of the IAEA Board's business
whether Iran suspended or resumed uranium-conversion activities, so long as
those activities continued to be subject to IAEA Safeguards.
Furthermore, it is important for you to know that the Iranian Safeguards Agreement guarantees Iran's "inalienable" right of access to any and all nuclear technologies, so long as the applications of such technology that involve "source of special nuclear materials" are made subject to IAEA Safeguards.
It is also important for you to know that IAEA Statute requires the IAEA to
facilitate the international transfer of any and all nuclear technologies, ensuring
"to the extent it is able" that none of them are subsequently used
"in furtherance of any military purpose."
Lastly, it is important for you to know that Iran is not required to adhere to the Additional Protocol until it is ratified – if ever – by the Iranian Parliament.
But you probably didn't know any of that because the neo-crazy media sycophants at Reuters, Associated Press, United Press International and other international news agencies have withheld that important information from you.
For example, you probably didn't know that the EU-Iran
Paris Agreement was merely to begin negotiations on a mutually acceptable
agreement to "provide objective guarantees" to the EU that "Iran's nuclear
program is exclusively for peaceful purposes."
And you certainly didn't know – because no media weenie has yet reported
it to you – that on March 23, 2005, Iran offered a package of "objective guarantees"
(developed by an international panel of experts) that included a voluntary "confinement"
of Iran's nuclear programs, including forgoing the reprocessing of spent fuel
and the production of plutonium.
So, what did Reuters' Louis Charbonneau tell you about the Iranian Note Verbale
of August 1st in which the Iranians noted that the EU had never responded
to their offer of March 23 and did not appear to be negotiating in good faith,
thereby effectively explaining why the Iranians were breaking off negotiations
with the EU?
According to Charbonneau;
"Tehran agreed with the European Union's biggest powers to halt all nuclear fuel work last November to ease tensions after the IAEA found Iran had hidden weapons-grade highly enriched uranium."
But now the Iranians had inexplicably gone out and "broke UN seals at a uranium
processing plant." In so doing;
"Tehran defied EU warnings [that] it could now be referred to the UN Security Council for possible sanctions for having kept its uranium enrichment work secret for years – until it was found out in 2002 – breaking the nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty."
Knowing what you know, now, you might conclude Charbonneau is deliberately misleading you.
Or that he's feeding you another pack of neo-crazy lies.
